straight 8 presents: A Bunch of Amateurs 12A

Screened in partnership with Straight 8
Kim Hopkins, UK, 2022, 95m.

Members of a quintessentially British working-class amateur filmmaking club, ‘BRADFORD MOVIE MAKERS’ grow old together amid flickering memories and challenging final years. Clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fuelled by endless cups of tea, this gently comedic, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the escapist dreamer in us all and to the enduring power of face-to-face time together, in an increasingly lonely, digital age.


WINNER of the Audience Award at Sheffield DocFest 2022.

“A charming ode to misfits” Metro ★★★★
